MPD: Man breaks into Walmart, steals TV while wearing plastic bag over head
MADISON, Wis. — Madison police are investigating after a man was caught breaking into a store on the city’s west side Wednesday night.
According to the incident report, the burglar pried open the front doors of the Walmart on 7202 Watts Road and stole a 55-inch TV shortly before midnight.
Officials said surveillance video showed the man walking into the store with a plastic Walmart bag over his head. Police said he either had a hard time breathing or seeing, as the man removed his “disguise” several times while inside.
The man left the store through a fire door and entered a getaway car that a woman was driving outside.
The police department’s Burglary Crime Unit will use the surveillance images in hopes of identifying the couple involved in the burglary.
